Description

The Perfect Man Is Hard to Find. Stitching One Is Easy.

It's not easy to find the perfect man, so why not knit your own? With easy-to-follow instructions for 13 different types, Knit Your Own Boyfriend is an irresistible guide to creating the man you've been "yarning" for.

The knitted boyfriend won't make a mess or steal the remote, and he comes with the right clothes for every occasion. Knit Your Own Boyfriend offers a wide selection of 13 eligible types: hipster, artist, rock star, doctor, skater, outdoorsman, and more. You decide on his height, build, and skin color, and you can choose hairstyles like slicked-back, curly, side part—even dreadlocks or a ponytail. You can also add facial hair, including woolly beards, moustaches, stubble, or a goatee. Along with the man himself are dozens of sartorial options. Like a guy in uniform? Make your boyfriend into a chef, a fireman, or a soldier. Prefer someone a bit more businesslike? Knit a suit, tie, and briefcase and make him into a lawyer, banker, or accountant. If you fancy something more athletic, there are patterns for a soccer player, surfer, or even an astronaut. Can't decide? Mix and match the clothing patterns to create your own special man.
